Tucker: Our leaders dither as our cities burn

If you did not hear Tucker Carlson’s monologue last night, you should. Republished here as a public service to a public that has been ill-served for months.

    What happens when you wind a spring up too far?
    Somebody runs for the medical kit.
    Or goes to the emergency room.

    I can come up with no reason for the behavior shown in that video.
    Except, that it is tolerated, thus, it continues, and gets worse.
    The politicians tell the cops not to do their jobs.
    I’m looking for the long view of this, what is the point?
    Is it purely political?

    As long as this remains in the urban areas I suspect it will go on indefinitely unless the root dynamic changes. If it migrates to suburbia the rules will automatically change because guns held by normal people aren’t common in urbania but are in suburbia. The commercial targets seem largely unoccupied and the owners are insured. In suburbia homes are occupied by people that are fearful and brave and willing to protect themselves.

    There are crossover places in urbania, called “mixed use” communities, where commercial presense is on the ground floor and residential on the upper floors. Again, people have guns and if attacked will use them. If they are fearful enough they will shoot nervously. Maybe shoot each other.

    What are the chances the criminals will up the ante and start shooting first?

    Tucker hit this one out of the park. He was moderately critical of Pence / Trump and justifiably so. The central point is that this widespread criminal behavior must be called what it is and must be stopped.

    Additionally, this issue has become the make-or-break item for Trump’s election hopes. I do hope he plays it well.

    Finally, about that insurance thing – to the best of my recollection any policy for insuring property I have ever read has a clause indicating something to the effect; void in events of civil unrest, rioting, war or “acts go God.”

    As for me and my house…I found grocery store flowers and a box of ammo specific to one of my guns on my porch today. Honorable and decent men abound.
